The Academy at LPP

The Academy at LPP is a new holistic quality national study ‘plus’ procurement programme, offering apprenticeships at levels two to four in procurement and other related courses, as well providing extra development opportunities for existing procurement professionals.

We are on the look-out for people who really want to make a difference to the NHS.  By starting a career in procurement or by simply gaining skills and qualifications in this area, you’ll play a vital role in helping the NHS to deliver excellent care and value for money.

Why an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships combine practical, on-the-job training and study and are a brilliant way to get your career started. By becoming an apprentice you’ll benefit from:

  • Earning while you learn
  • Gaining practical and relevant work experience
  • Boosting your CV and your career prospects
  • Achieving qualifications to put you ahead of the rest.
